The first task when creating a new method is to define the needed steps for your chromatography. Also if you want to edit the setup of an analysis or add more steps to an existing analysis you do this in the following view:


HPTLC Steps is the first tab of method and analysis files. Click on instruments on the top area and they will be added to the bottom area. The steps will be executed in the chronological order of the storyboard at the bottom (left to right). You can rearrange steps in the bottom area by dragging/dropping them and you can delete them if needed. The Finish step definition button brings you to the actual chromatography tab (next tab in any method or analysis file).
